Every family has quirks, patterns and tolerances that have developed over decades. Some are so busy being in the family they don’t have time or tools to work on the family system. The family may be generally happy yet a craving for more taps at the backs of the members’ thinking. Each member sees potential in their fellow family members; some don’t see the innate potential in themselves. All of these factors affect the family’s internal harmony and, in turn, its collective impact outside of the family system and into future generations.
For many families of significant means, money was the outcome, not the goal. However, with adult children and grandchildren, families face the ongoing challenge of modeling and sustaining what it means to lead a rich life – a life enhanced yet not dominated by material wealth.
Wealth exacerbates a family’s preexisting fault lines. The generational time clock converts minor annoyances into brick walls of disunity. Consider your family now versus fifty years from now. You can make the good better or allow the rough spots to magnify. You can continue at status quo or create a powerful unit for betterment and change outside of the family system.
